ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech swimming & diving team heads north for its final road meet of the season, taking on Virginia Tech and Miami in an ACC double dual meet Saturday in Christiansburg, Va.
The Yellow Jackets will get an early preview of the ACC Championship venue, as the same pool hosts the women’s championship Feb. 15-18 and the men’s championship a week later.
The GT men are coming off a strong showing last weekend in a double dual versus Florida State and NC State, taking the Seminoles to the wire in a narrow 162.5-137.5 defeat. Freshman Andrew Kosic paced the men, tying for the win in the 50 free (20.32), finishing second in the 100 free (45.17), helping the 400 free relay to a third-place finish and competing on the 200 medley relay that finished fourth.
For his efforts, Kosic was tabbed GT’s male student-athlete of the week.
For the women, they were also led by a freshman last weekend as Ariana Berg was victorious the 100 breast, putting down a winning time of 1:05.65, which was just off her season-best by six-tenth of a second. Senior Jordan Evans claimed a pair of second-place finishes, as she was clocked at 55.98 in the 100 fly and 2:08.11 in the 200 IM.
Following Saturday’s meet at VT, the team returns home to host Emory at the GT Aquatic Center next Saturday at 11 a.m. on Senior Day.
